Nigel Farage is a typical Brit.

 

There’s nothing he enjoys more than to listen to himself talk. For a man like Farage, the world is simple. Do what I say, and good things will flow from it.

 

Europe has democracies, the US does not. The founders designed our government to be decisive in times of stress and otherwise, impotent. Europe’s democracies left out decisive.

 

Farage is not Trump. Trump has power given to him by our constitution. Like him or not, he can move on a dime. The European democracies can’t move at all. All the EU elections accomplished is to make Europe less governable.

 

In my 4th novel, “Ghosts Never Die,” I create the situation where Germany could be ruled again by a king. This is explored in more depth in volumes 5 and 6 which will, unfortunately not be released until next year. In my opinion, Europe will have two options going forward. They’re either going to become monarchies or be ruled by tyrants. Mob rule never works, which is why Rome kept appointing Caesars.

 

Keep in mind, Farage’s victory does not make him PM, only England’s representative to the EU, the institution Farage wants to eliminate. In fact, Farage has spent the last 20 years earning $120,000 pounds per year, being paid by the EU while carping about the EU. He’s vested in their pension plan and gets a tax-free income.

 

Trump, on the other hand has spent the last twenty years swindling banks and investors out of their money. Now he’s trying to screw the Chinese. Seems like a good fit, but that’s just me.

 

In other words, Farage is more like Bernie Sanders than Donald Trump.

 

It’s easy to like a strong leader and I have to admit, I spent hours listening to Farage insult his EU counterparts. It was hilarious. But make no mistake, Farage is not and never will be a leader. He’s a hack, a bullshitter, a charlatan and a camera whore. As soon as he has to make real decisions, his popularity will be that of a child rapist.

 

You can say anything to Trump, but he’ll still deal with you. Reagan was like that. Both of these men have thick skin. I think the only people Reagan really ever truly hated were Gorbachev and his vice president, Bush 41.

 

People don’t realize that Europe’s being run by banks may be as good as it gets. Populism isn’t a form of government, it’s a form of theft. It was voters that destroyed Venezuela, not socialism. It will be voters that destroy Europe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Or, bean-body theory explained.)

 

When I was in college, and well before marijuana was as refined as it is today, there was a curious theory called bean-body theory.

 

Hang with me here.

 

In evolutionary theory there was an old saying that “Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny.” What that means is that during gestation, a human fetus takes on the characteristics of our evolutionary past. (Gill slits and webbed feet.)

 

Bean-body theory takes this one step further by saying that Phylogeny recapitulates Ontogeny. In other words, as we age, our bodies begin to resemble beans. Therefore, we must have all evolved FROM beans.

 

My take on this is that the legalization of marijuana will bring back ideas like bean-body theory, and in fact this is already occurring with theories like Global Climate Change, Gender Fluidity, Vegan diets and IQ testing.

 

 

Imagine for a moment that you’re at a friend’s house and you’re halfway through a monster doobie of Northern Californian and a glass of Napa Valley merlot and your friend explains bean body theory while showing you a picture of say… Hillary Clinton or the women on The View.

 

You’d be like… “Yea, man, I see it!”

 

People who think bean-body theory is outlandish have obviously never set foot on a college campus. I recall once having to walk past the Pugil Stick line, as I call it, outside Harvard University. It’s a series of stands filled with activists. In one was a Haaavad  professor who stopped me.

 

Professor: “Excuse me, can I ask you a question?”

Me: “Why not?”

Professor: “What do you think of the quality of education at that school,” he said, pointing to the Cambridge Rindge and Latin school, a high school that borders the campus.

Me: “I don’t know anything about it. My kids didn’t go there.”

Professor: “Well. If they did go there, what would you have thought of the quality of their education?”

 

I’m NOT making this up. This guy had a PHD and taught at Harvard! (And looked just like Robert Redford, with that look of elite arrogance and snobbish self-assurance.) In this backdrop, asking the opinion of someone who admits knowing NOTHING about the topic, just how loony does bean-body theory sound?

 

 

For the record, there hasn’t been a single idea, including the Paris accord that would measurably reduce CO2 emissions. There is no evidence that genders are fluid and most doctors consider raising a child on a vegan diet to be child abuse and the parents should lose custody. A lawyer for an environmental group once said on CNN “Our clients have a right to their opinion regardless of how factual it is.”

 

If you take in totality the legalization of pot, liberal arts education, the lack of even a rudimentary understanding of biology, evolution or logic along with this new “Harry Potter as literature” mantra in schools, not only could bean-body theory be feasible, but a whole slew of moronic, idiotic, overly simplistic, bone-headed ideas will become main stream.

 

Personally, I can’t wait. I love bean-body theory.

 

Does the left want to exterminate 65 million Christians?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Theresa May’s biggest mistake was inviting Trump to England.

 

Want to hear a dirty little secret? The British hate Americans.

 

They look down their nose at everybody but save their hatred for Americans, and Donald Trump’s visit will expose that.

 

Every nation’s cohesiveness is based on their ability to create a mythology. Few historical leaders are as they become after the die. Kennedy was a worthless drunk. Most of the American founding fathers were land speculators. Men joined the army during the revolutionary war because they were promised two meals a day. Contrary to myth, the US was not taxed heavily by the British. The colonies were a tax heaven. There was no “freedom of religion.” It was illegal to be a Catholic.

 

British mythology revolves around their belief that the British empire was like Rome and it was powerful because of the intelligence and resilience of the people. It’s utter horseshit.

 

The British “empire” was a banking empire based on the idea that everything in England was subservient to the value of the pound. During large parts of their history, their glory years were times of misery for their people. If you’ve ever read Great Expectations or Little Dorrit, you get an inside look at the non-mythical “empire.” During a time Keynes called the peak of British power, 12 million people left the island. In 1900, 90% of all British land was owned by 400 men.

 

Contrary to the tales of inspector Morse, the communist party was extremely popular among the British, especially lesser royals that did not inherit property.

 

My point is, England needs the USA and Trumps visit and the protests that come with it will show the “deplorables” in America just how much the British hate the USA.

 

If the British leave the EU and there’s a rift between the US and England, the UK is finished. Their existence is based on the fact that the US will back their claims militarily. This is why Tony Blair agreed to send troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. Without the US, the British navy is a bunch of fishing boats.

 

The larger problem with England is Russia. Germany doesn’t need England, but you can bet your ass they need Russia and Russia needs them. Germany has no energy sources and a huge, highly technical manufacturing base. They also have no army or navy. Russia has an enormous energy industry and a highly intelligent population but can’t manufacture fly swatters. And Russians can fight like the devil.

 

Had Hitler not launched operation Barbarossa against Russia, England today would be ruled by Germans much as it was for centuries. England, to use the words of Fernand Braudel, became an island when they relinquished Normandy under Elizabeth 1st. For three centuries their banks ran world trade and their royals lived like… well, royals.

 

Those days are over. The British have neither the people nor the resources to be an Island again. They can’t do small. If they decide as a nation that they don’t want the US President in their country, they’re fucked. It’s the deplorables that join the Army. Americans will be very hard pressed to bail out the British in a war. Even in the tiny Falklands war, British officers have conceded that without Ronald Reagan, the Brits would have lost.

 

If they’re not able to defend a rock against Argentina, how can they defend the strait of Hormuz, the North Sea or the Suez Canal?  

 

May’s mistake was her arrogance. Under normal times, the Queen would have fixed this.

 

Most people, including many Brits do not realize what a truly great woman Elizabeth was. She was the greatest leader of the twentieth century. She was the glue that held the country together but more importantly, she was as powerful as a bear and as graceful as a swan. She patched over long held international grievances, smoothed over political differences, covered for England’s army of arrogant, witless leaders and showered the country in foreign business contracts.

 

But the queen is old and feeble, and her heir is a worthless petunia planting fucktard. Honestly, as an emissary, the UK would be better of sending a red nosed Irish Pub owner to commonwealth countries than Charles. Of the Queens two grandsons, one is as silent as a lamb and the other wouldn’t invite the American president to his wedding.  

 

And make no mistake, millions, perhaps tens of millions of “deplorables” see the connection between MI6 and the attempted overthrow of Donald Trump and this leads straight to Theresa May.

 

England is rudderless, leaderless, weak and vulnerable. Frankly, Theresa May couldn’t leave fast enough.
